Placing Items on Reserve (for instructors)
Please review the following policies before completing the Course Reserve Request Form (printable pdf) and return to the Service Desk at the Jung-Kellogg Library or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Provide the call number for any item placed on reserve from MBU’s collection. Photocopies and other items provided by the instructor should be noted as Personal Copy.
• Photocopied chapters and articles should only be used one semester under “fair use.” To use multiple items, you need to have permission from the publisher. When photocopying from a book no more than 10% of the book is allowed. When photocopying from a journal, only one article is allowed per issue. The instructor must sign the reserve form themselves, since permission to use the material was given to them. Keep copyright permission letters handy in case any questions surface regarding the reserve material.
• Videos and sound recordings may be placed on reserve.
• Materials (other than photocopies) received through MOBIUS or Interlibrary Loan cannot be placed on reserve.
